Ekahau Inc., a developer of Wi-Fi-based Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), has launched the L4 Laptop tag, a small flat unit designed to be plugged into the ExpressCard slot. The tag works with the Ekahau RTLS system, which can track and manage the tags anywhere on a campus that has Wi-Fi coverage.

By knowing the location and status, the Ekahau RTLS system can alert users if a laptop or tablet computer leaves a designated area or if it enters an unsecure area. The L4 features a built-in motion sensor to detect movement and to manage how the tag communicates. A tamper alert switch detects if the tag is being removed from a laptop and a programmable SOC (System on a Chip) design allows the tag to be configured to the user’s exact requirements. The L4 tags are supported on all major enterprise Wi-Fi network brands without the need for any proprietary readers or sensors, the company says.
